Oklahoma City, OK – Discontentment, violent behavior, mental illness, trauma, grief; all relevant cultural issues, all topics covered, with solutions presented by renowned mental health expert R. Murali Krishna, M.D. In his book Vibrant, To Heal and Be Whole, From India to Oklahoma City, Dr. Krishna shares how each of us can live a life of happiness, contentment, hope, fulfillment, and yes, even VIBRANCE!

Dr. Krishna utilizes personal stories of tragedy and triumph coupled with nearly five decades of medical study, experience and research to give readers encouragement and hope along with clear, simple actions that can be taken to move toward vibrance. Dr. Krishna’s most personal story is how he first learned of the effects of mental illness. His once vibrant mother began to suffer a mental disorder. He was a nine-year-old boy growing up in India, and his whole life was changed as a result of his mother’s distress. Dr. Krishna also shares his experience and insights into how a community heals and becomes whole after suffering through the fear and loss created by acts of terrorism. The bomb that rocked Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995, took 168 lives and affected tens of thousands more. Whether tragedy is private and personal or collectively devastating, Dr. Krishna draws from his experiences to guide readers to resiliency by illustrating emotional, physical and spiritual balance.

Proceeds from the sale of Vibrant will endow the Eliminate the Stigma Award.
